Whether you're heading home for some well deserved R&R or escaping the cold for a tropical getaway, a trusty holdall is the best gift you can give yourself this holiday season. A good travel bag will keep all your carry-on essentials organized
and will make navigating the airport crowds
a smoother experience. We've found 13 functional and stylish travel bags that to make your holiday packing and traveling a whole lot easier.
Dagne Dover Landon Carryall Large ($185):
The Landon is one of those magical bags that has a spot for everything. Made of lightweight neoprene, it has a padded laptop sleeve, tons of pockets (including a dedicated spot for a water bottle), a stretch key leash, and a shoe bag.
Away The Everywhere Bag ($195):
Away's carry-all bag is just as sleek and functional as the rest of the line's luggage, and it slips right onto the handles of your carry-on suitcase.
LeSportsac Candace Weekender Duffel ($125):
An eye-catching rainbow print means you'll never misplace this bag or get it confused with anyone else's, which we consider a huge win when dealing with holiday crowds.
Everlane The Twill Weekender ($98):
We all know and love Everlane, and their weekender is a classic, affordable piece that works for everyone.
ban.do Getaway Duffle Bag ($58):
ban.do is known for its fun, quirky products and this duffle is no exception. Pick one of five colorful prints for a bag that will always stand out.
Cuyana Le Sud Overnight ($215):
True to its mission of "fewer, better," Cuyana has made a well-crafted bag that will last you a lifetime. The leather contrasted with the canvas is the right mix of luxe and casual.
Lo & Sons Catalina Canvas Weekender ($120):
The best feature of this lightweight bag is the bottom zip compartment. Pack shoes or dirty laundry away from the rest of your travel things.
State Bags Douglass ($80):
Sometimes a roomy, no-frills tote that just does the job is all you need. Pack it up inside your other bag so you can bring extra goodies back with you.
Caraa Studio 2 Medium Bag ($395):
Don't be fooled by the simple, streamlined look of this bag, because it's so much more than it appears to be. The Studio 2 converts from a crossbody or shoulder bag to a backpack, making it great for travel.
Oliver Thomas Wanderlust Weekender Duffle ($109):
The best part of this bag is the patent pending secret stash — a zippered compartment built into the bottom that expands when you need an extra compartment. Customize the bag with initials and trendy badges to make it your own.
Paravel Stowaway ($325):
The retro feel of this valise style travel bag is enough to make us love it, but there's more. The Stowaway collapses and stores completely flat, making it perfect for small-space dwellers when not on the road.
Nomad Lane The Bento Bag ($169):
This option opens at the middle for serious organization, fits under your seat, and has a built-in charger. The Bento Bag is available at a discounted pre-order price until the bag ships in November.
